Now that Joe Biden has won the Presidency, that would make Kamala Harris the first female Vice President in the history of the nation. While historic to say the least, Harris has come under fire lately for comments she made during the campaign trail when she was running for President. During an interview, Harris decided to suggest that the long hours on the campaign trail are equivalent to prisoners begging for food and water.
As you may believe, the so-called joke didn’t go over well with voters and many saw the comments to be tasteless, but it gets much better. When the story was first told by Harris, the Washington Post decided to run the story. Here is how it read.
“Kamala been recounting how in the days before the Democratic debate in Miami life had actually slowed down to a manageable pace. Kamala, Maya and the rest of the team had spent three days prepping for that contest in a beach-facing hotel suite, where they closed the curtains to blot out the fun. But for all the hours of studying policy and practicing the zingers that would supercharge her candidacy, the trip allowed for a break in an otherwise all-encompassing schedule.
“I actually got sleep,” Kamala said, sitting in a Hilton conference room, beside her sister, and smiling as she recalled walks on the beach with her husband and that one morning SoulCycle class she was able to take.
“That kind of stuff,” Kamala said between sips of iced tea, “which was about bringing a little normal to the days, that was a treat for me.”
“I mean, in some ways it was a treat,” Maya said. “But not really.”
“It’s a treat that a prisoner gets when they ask for, ‘A morsel of food please,’ ” Kamala said shoving her hands forward as if clutching a metal plate, her voice now trembling like an old British man locked in a Dickensian jail cell. “‘And water! I just want wahtahhh….’ Your standards really go out the f***ing window.”
Kamala burst into laughter.
To make the joke even worse, Harris even laughs at her comments about the campaign trail being like a prison. What is even more astonishing is when Harris became VP, the Washington Post ran the story again, but this time – they left out the part about Harris believing she was in prison.
When pressed about the change in the story, the news outlet released a statement saying, “We repurposed and updated some of our strong biographical pieces about both political figures” and the story “was updated with new reporting, as noted online, using the existing URL. The original story remains available in print.”
While the original story is now back up for people to read, there are several links ahead of the story that leads readers to a completely different toned-down version. Again, this is nothing more than media censorship aimed at the Democratic party to help them boost their approval ratings ahead of a turbulent four years.
